The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members are often redeployed to their home states on health grounds or issues of national security as is often the case with intending corps members posted to Borno state.
However, in more hilarious twist to attempts of parents to influence the redeployment of their children, one Mrs Uwakwe Theresa has written to the National Youths Service Corps for the redeployment of her son, Chijioke Kingsley Nnamdi, stating that he suffers from spiritual attack called ‘Ogugu.’
Chijioke was posted to Yobe state for his national service. Theresa’s letter implores the NYSC scheme to redeploy his son back home so he can be attended to by his exorcist/prophet.
She explained that Chijioke’s case is not a medical condition and added that administering any form of orthodox medicines when he is under the attack would trigger a regretful outcome or at worse, end his life.
She went on to explain that what is behind her son’s condition is very mystical.
